Quality seemed excellent, and the installation was easy and secure.

These drop bar ends make it possible to use 5 different riding positions, but you aren't stuck with drop bars.

Probably the only way to go unless your handlebars are already bent like these are.

I bought these bar ends a couple weeks ago and really like the fact that they give me a more aerodynamic profile on my bike. I have a hybrid bike with flat bars and was regretting not buying a road bike. These don't make your bike into a road bike, but they are the best bar ends with that purpose in mind. They come only in metal so if you are riding bare handed it can get cold. I'm buying lizard skin wraps available here on amazon to fix that problem.
Taking off one star because they are smaller than I thought they could be and riding without brakes is scary as hell. I would like the loop to go a little lower and have a little more room when you are holding on to the highest part. People with bigger hands might find that they can only use the bottom part of the grips.
Without brakes on these things you should be careful to only use them when no cars are around, otherwise switching to the flat bar brakes, depending on your skill level and speed, you are going to have to take one hand off at a time so you and your bike don't fall over which takes a couple seconds and might be too late if you need to react quickly. One more thing, these are also not as good as real drop bars because they are further apart at the ends of your flat handlebar, real drop bars are much narrower, giving you a more aerodynamic profile. Lastly, you are going to have to probably cut some of your grips off to fit these on. On my bike, I found that 105mm of grip let me fit these a little more than halfway on. Most grips seem to be 130mm. Bottom line, biking is funner with these on. 4 and a half stars if amazon let me give a half more :).

So, I have a Trek 7.3 hybrid. After doing a couple 75 mi rides, the straight bars provided on the hybrid get a bit annoying, as they only provide a couple different hand positions (believe me, I have gotten creative). I am in grad school, and cannot afford to spend 100+ dollars on converting my straight bars to drop bars. Thus, I bought these, and they are great. I had to cut my grips a bit to get them to where I wanted them, but they provide great alternatives for grips, as well as providing a more "aerodynamic" option. A couple of the other reviews said that it is "scary" to switch grips to break, as the hybrid breaks are on the straight bar. However, unless you do the transition like a sloth or turtle, you will be fine. I highly suggest this product.

I installed these in an inverted position which allows me to sit nearly completely upright allieviating pressure from my hands and taking full advantage of tailwinds. High quality and well made.

i have these on some riser bars on a commuter type bicycle. i have added some foam pads to the bar ends and with that they provide good utility. where you might have stretches with little braking they allow for a good tuck riding position.

with your hands on the top of them at the end of the flat bar they assist with climbing and most fingers/thumbs can probably apply a light brake force from this position as well.

thus far they have been a useful accessory.

I love these drop bar ends! I recently bought a new hybrid bike and was regretting it because I like the drop bar position when riding. Then I found these bar ends and am completely satisfied! They are super strong and stay in place, so don't worry about them shifting on you. It gives you numerous positions to ride. I made a slight brake modification and moved my front brake lever onto the drop bar end. This way I would be able to have stopping power when in the drop bar position. Check out my pictures, hope they help.

I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to ride in a different position and add a little style to their bike. You will not regret buying them.

These are awesome bar ends if you can't convert to real drop bars.Origin8 is a good brand too so it's a good high-quality product.

I was concerned at first that they might not stay in place with the extended forward/downward pressure but they do.They clamp very tight.

They are a little smaller than I thought they would be but only a little and turns out I like them a little better that way.

I put them on my hot-rod full suspension road bike so I could still use my regular shifters with the drops and they are excellent.You don't have to but after a few days of riding them I moved everything in and cut a full 3 inches off my handlebars and they are even better than before.

Very comfortable and will actually increase your speed because they put your body in a more aerodynamic position.Plus the new position gives you more pedaling power which increases your speed considerably and makes pedaling into the wind quite a bit easier.

They are great bar ends.Very glad I bought them.

Don't forget some foam grips or handlebar tape.I got the foam.

I have a fine cafe bike with flat bars. Yes, it's a beauty, but hand positions are limited and I primarily ride for distance on pathways and Greenways. To combat hand/wrist fatigue I bought these bars. I love them! I took 4 inches off each end of my flat bars and installed these. It makes me so much happier to ride without getting numbness and/or nerve pain.

The only downside to these bars is that sometimes I forget that the brakes are still located on the flats...muscle memory has me reaching for road levers - yikes! Have to mindful to change hand positions for braking, which is a real learning process.

Anyway, this product should be wildly popular and I think better marketing would make it so. If you are on a budget and want a more versatile bicycle and have flat bars, do yourself a favor: take some length off the flatbars with a hacksaw, move the brake/shifter levers closer to the handlebar stem, and install these. Then, practice moving your hands up to the brake levers. They are a practical (not perfect) solution to a common problem.
